About Susan

I have been in the teaching field for 17 years. I have been tutoring for the last 25 years. I tutored elementary and middle school students when I was in high school. While I attended a community college I tutored for the honor society. When I transferred to a 4-year university I tutored middle school students through the TRIO program and eventually became the site coordinator. Meanwhile, I also tutored college students in College Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. I became the Lead Math tutor in the Tutoring department for 2 years. In order to be the Lead Math Tutor I had to become a certified Tutor. I also did private tutoring during this time. My focus was in mathematics. My bachelors is in Mathematics. I am a certified Secondary Math Teacher in the state of Texas.

My goal is to work myself out of a job. I want to give the students the help and tools they need to become self-reliant on their learning. I never just give answers. I learn where the student is by asking probing questions to see where they are and work out a plan to get them to where they need to be.

I have taught Algebra I for the last 17 years to students that learn the content and English at the same time. Last year while I was my schools Math Interventionist 7-9th grade our STAAR & EOC Scores jumped 22 percent from the prior year.

This is a little background on what I have done. I just really enjoy teaching and seeing the smiles on my students’ faces when the “light” of understanding turns on.

I enjoy teaching. I had trouble while I was going to high school at times and that struggle is what I keep in the back of my mind when I teach and tutor.

I have been teaching a GED Prep course at a local community college for the last 6 years. In my last semester I had 44% of my students go and take all 4 exams and pass the GED. I had 83% of the students at least take 1-3 exams and pass them.

I have a flexible schedule after 4 pm and weekends. I understand the struggle of understanding math but have found a way to build your confidence in your ability to learn.
